Phylogeny of the clusioid clade (Malpighiales): evidence from the plastid and mitochondrial genomes.
This phylogeny will form the foundation for the future work investigating the biogeography of tropical angiosperms that exhibit Gondwanan distributions and is the first well-resolved, taxon-rich phylogeny of the clusioid clade. Expand
Structural and developmental diversity in Podostemaceae (river-weeds)
The structural categories of typical flowering plants are transcended in the Podostemaceae due to developmental changes and saltational evolution. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Podostemaceae: implications for taxonomy of major groups
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of matK sequences for 657 samples showed that plants of Tristicha (Tristichoideae) and of Weddellina (Weddellinoideae), which are currently treated as monospecific, had great matK differentiation equivalent to at least interspecific variation. Expand
Developmental Genetics and Morphological Evolution of Flowering Plants, Especially Bladderworts (Utricularia): Fuzzy Arberian Morphology Complements Classical Morphology
This review compares new developmental models on flowering and other vascular plants with evolutionary hypotheses formulated by Agnes Arber and like-minded botanists and focuses on the FAM Approach, which complements Cla ssical Plant M orphology (ClaM Approach), which is the traditional approach in botany.

Gynoecium, fruit and seed structure of Paullinieae (Sapindaceae)
Despite an emphasis on fruit characters in Paullinieae taxonomy, few detailed morphological and anatomical studies of the gynoecia, fruits and seeds exist. The aims of the present study were (1) toExpand
Developmental morphology of stipules and systematics of the Cunoniaceae and presumed allies. I: Taxa with interpetiolar stipules
Les resultats de l'etude du developpement des feuilles and stipules, ofertains d'anatomie nodale parmi les Cuniaceae, et des familles qui leur sont proches, sont presentes. Expand
The developmental morphology ofIndotristicha ramosissima (Podostemaceae, Tristichoideae)
The developmental morphology of Indotristicha ramosissima, a submerged rheophyte from South India, is described and some morphogenetic switches are postulated in order to derive it from a putative ancestor that still showed the classical root-shoot model typical of most angiosperms. Expand
Developmental morphology of Apinagia multibranchiata (Podostemaceae) from the Venezuelan Guyanas
The architecture and developmental morphology of A. multibranchiata are compared with other members of the genus and they fit well with the Podostemoideae bauplan known from other New World genera. Expand
The Phyllotaxy of Costus (Costaceae)
A morphological and developmental study of three species of Costus revealed a number of facts about this unusual phyllotactic pattern, including that in all three species, the cataphylls and foliage leaves have tubular sheaths, while the inflorescence bracts are nonsheathing and spiromonostichy is only loosely correlated with closed leaf sheaths.
